Thanks guys,...and Richards correct lol ,it’s Fathom green. It’s one of those colors that looks best in the sunlight since it’s fairly dark

I stand corrected. It is green. Hard to see in smaller photos on the phone. Beautiful color though.

Beautiful result! The several shades of GREEN all blend into each other nicely!

I agree with everyone else, this is a beautiful looking convertible. Great attention to details in both the interior and the engine. The colors you used for the different components under the hood look exact.

BEAUTIFUL work!!  Yes, Fathom Green is my favorite, too.  I did mine the same except for some dog dish caps and houndstooth interior.  Like you said, light does wonders for it....

Usually when doing wood grain my method is I paint a base color down ( depending on the shade desired for end result) a shade of tan. Next I follow up with various shades of fine tip brown sharpies for grain. After that I have an old square bottle of basic testors brown in which most of the pigment has settled leaving a translucent brown at the top of the jar. I put a coat of that over the top and done. You can put more layers on to darken it or start with a darker shade of tan as a base.

Thanks Brandon, IIRC the wheels came from the Amt 70 chevelle kit. As for the tires ,they came from my parts box but I’ve had them for probably 20 years. They were from an aftermarket company but I can’t recall which one. Nowadays they’re fairly readily available from many kits and aftermarket sources.

Man alive , THAT is a gorgeous drop-top ! 

L-89 ? Forget about it ! Such a great idea... I wonder if any were actually made ? No power-rating-increase ; however , the weight-savings would more than compensate (especially on a convertible) .

Keep 'em coming , Dave !
